Winter Fox in snow

Winter Fox Pictures

Svalbard. Early afternoon. 
The temperature was cold as you would expect in the Arctic. I didn’t know one day to another what was going to transpire as this trip was not well organized and that bothered me a lot. I was not complaining about the weather, I was complaining to myself about doing a lousy job in preproduction. “I should have planned this trip better,” I kept saying to myself. Maybe it’s the control-freak in me, or perhaps it was just not planned correctly. I kept on beating myself mentally.

After riding on the snowmobile for hours, I spotted this fox; my reaction was “no, not a fox again,” as I was looking for a polar bear. But then this fox came closer and closer to me without any fear, it started to pose for me. Wildlife photographers sometimes wait for hours if not days for moments like this and I got it in less than 10 minutes of spotting this fox.

I continued to complain because I didn’t get the polar bear. When I got back to NYC, I didn’t even go over the images. I was so disappointed that I decided to delete all of them. After forcing myself to give them at least one glance, I found this image. I realized how ungrateful I had been.

Facts about the Winter Fox

The winter fox has a rounded body with short legs and small ears. These features help it adapt to living in extremely cold environments. To warm itself, the winter fox curls its bushy tail around its body. Its paws are covered with thick fur which makes moving across the snow and ice easier. The winter fox can survive on the temperature of minus 120 degrees Fahrenheit. It lives in the underground burrows of the Arctic that have up to a hundred entrances. These burrows are hundred of years very old and have been used by numerous generations of the white fox.
